Yesterday, for lunch, I made an oriental stir fry for my family. Most teriyaki dishes are now available in the market, but most of these contain a host of other preservatives that aren’t good for you or your kids.
This stir-fry is delicious and better than most because you know exactly what’s going into it. If you want to substitute ingredients to reduce the sodium content (or if you’re sensitive to soy, you can replace the soy sauce with tempeh or your preferred soy sauce alternative.
Three to four diced chicken breasts
One head of broccoli, chopped
Two to three bell peppers, julienned
One onion, chopped
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Two tablespoons olive oil
- In a large nonstick saucepan, sauté the chicken in the olive oil until cooked. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
- Add soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil. Sauté for around two minutes. Remove chicken from pan.
- Add onions, broccoli, and red peppers. Sauté a minute, then cover for two to three minutes.
- Return chicken back to pan, then sauté for two more minutes. Serve with hot rice.
